    I liked the show, but I enjoy most sci-fi/fantasy shows. I admit the show had some problems but I’m hopeful season two will see a big improvement in the storyline.

    Okey, I confess. I would probably have liked this show up to around I turned 20 ish something. Now due to having a beard I see it for what it is, junk. Im not crashing on people who like this. Its a gift to be able to find enjoyment at substandard entertainment. Could be connected to my high culture consumption, dont worry, its not about age but how much you are exposed to good shows.

    Terrible program. Dreadful script. Wooden acting. Cliched to hell story lines. The fact it has been renewed for a second series only demonstrates just how utterly stupid the human race is.

    I am a single guy who may never take a wife. This doesn’t matter to me anymore, as I have become married to “Helix”, after discovering the show almost by accident several weeks ago. What a great show! I can’t wait for a second season. Thank you SyFy and Ron Moore for sharing your collective genius with the world.

    Helix’s numbers are low because SyFy, in its usual non knowledge of truly great sci fi, did NOTHING to promote it. It appeared one night 13 weeks ago in a line up of new shows at sometime in the middle of the night. I simply stumbled upon it because I always check SyFy for being an addict of their new b-movies on Saturday nights and it happened to be the premiere night I opened up the guide on. It looked interesting so I DVR’d it and watched it several days later. This show is excellent. It is the first smart, exciting, adult SyFy show they have shown since the changeover. Better (imho) than Defiance and Continuum. My husband and I have watched each episode live, something we reserve only for the great shows like The Walkind Dead, Homeland, and Game of Thrones. I have turned many people onto it and they all love it. Thank you SyFy for taking a chance on a great show that will grow as Season one is released and people begin to find it! Five stars for this show and SyFy? DO SOME ADVERTISING!!!

    I think they should definitely make a season 2 dark too many people who like sci-fi type shows like this but isn’t that why its on this channel. I’ll be really upset if they don’t continue to make a second season. And they definitely should because I think its the best sci fi show out since X Files.

    Too many great shows are being axed. One example in Being Human. So annoying when a new and interesting show appears and then it’s gone. You get involved in the characters. I love Helix. I sincerely hope it gets renewed.
